A Spanish Play

A Spanish Play was a theatre production staged by The National Theatre in 2006, based on the play by Yasmina Reza.

Thea Stabell directed it.

Nils Ole Oftebro won The Hedda Award 2006 in the best supporting actor category for the role of Mariano.

The Hedda Jury gave the following reason:

"For 35 years this year's winner has delighted, entertained and moved his audience through interpreting the most diverse male roles. He is honoured for an excellent interpretation in which he masterfully balanced his acting between illusion and irony, impressing with his technical brilliance and efficiently using all his stage charisma. The play was a typical ensemble piece in which he, with certain insight, found his rightful place.

The best supporting actor award goes to Nils Ole Oftebro for his elegant interpretation of Mariano, 'an immoral sissy', in A Spanish Play."
